Hi guys,

So I have my Bravo scheduled for this coming week, and I've been ordered off PPis a week in advance. It should be alright to take Tums and Pepcid in the meantime, right? Just as long as I stop a day or two prior to the endoscopy/Bravo placement?

My gastro didn't take me off omeprazole, beginning to think he isn't familure with gerd and hiatal hernia.

I was allowed tums, not Pepcid... You should call your doctor and ask.
